Abstract:   (839 Views)
Background: One of the necessary features to confront the COVID-19 pandemic is performance and resilience which causes nursing managers to have a wider perspective based on preventing preparation and reaction to the disaster. This study aims to evaluate the nursing perspectives on nursing management during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Materials and Methods: One hundred eighty-nine Iranian nurses working in a Corona Center hospital took part in this cross-sectional study. This hospital is the main center for curing COVID-19 patients in Guilan province, Iran. The data were collected using a questionnaire consisting of demographic features and disaster-managing surveys based on seven engineering approaches in hospitals by enumeration sampling from June to October 2021.
Results: Findings showed the Mean±SD score of the nursing managers’ functions was 141.77±26.12 based on resilience approaches during the COVID-19 pandemic, and 73.2% of the participants believed that the managers’ performance during the pandemic was at a medium level. The Mean±SD scores of resilience principles in the nursing managers’ performance with detachment consisted of the commitment of the senior management at 29.34±5.90, the culture of fallibility at 18.34±3.84, the culture of learning at 11.81±2.77, awareness 6.62±1.61, preparation 9.56±4.03, flexibility 48.42±10.31, and transparency 17.35±4.03. There was a great statistical difference between the nursing managers’ performance and the employment type.
Conclusion: The nursing managers’ performance level was at a medium level based on the resilience principles during the COVID-19 pandemic. The desirable performance of the nursing managers caused a reduction in burnout, increased job satisfaction, and ultimately reduced the nurses’ taking leaves. Therefore, designing and performing effective interventions to improve the nursing managers’ performance in a disaster is necessary. The trauma caused by COVID-19 has increased the nursing managers’ responsibility to create safe environments and perform the nurses’ protection policy. These activities and strategies can be performed at different levels.
